These birds are driving me to distraction. As they hop from branch to branch, tree to tree, they keep chirping and calling so enticingly, I keep running every few minutes from window to window to balcony back to window trying to catch these elusive creatures, camera in hand.
I have already posted a picture of a white cheeked barbet taken from my balcony as well as a video of a purple sunbird hopping around.
Today I have a still picture of a very small greenish brown bird. This bird is very hard to catch as it is very well camouflaged and extremely active. It hardly sits still for a few seconds. I am told this is the green munia or the green avadavat. Got it after great difficulty today.
Well, the story does not end there. It is of course wonderful to have rare birds calling out on the tree just outside my window. But it is also interesting to see what surpirses my old time friends - the pigeons spring on me.
